One of Harlequins worst signings in recent years has finally left the club.
Chris Ashton’s nightmare year at the Stoop came to an end this week when he headed for Sixways, joining Worcester with immediate effect.
The speedster, who is just four tries away from becoming the Premiership’s record all-time try-scorer, spent less than eleven months at Quins and never seemed to really settle.
Harlequins worst signings:
1. Chris Ashton
Paul Gustard described him as “without doubt one of the most competitive, professional and dedicated athletes” he had come across when he signed for the club in March 2020. The following January, after a handful of sporadic appearances, Ashton was granted early release as he ‘didn’t want to waste the next six months’ at Harlequins.
